Violent, Fast & Kick-Ass: Hands On with Anarchy Reigns
The hype train really needs to get moving on this one. Platinum make amazing action games, games that challenge you rather than hand out scores for button mashing, and they largely go by unnoticed. For shame.

You know what that means, don’t you: There is no excuse. I have to go to the dentist. It’s not that I don’t take care of my teeth, and I’ve never been nervous about it before, but I literally haven’t had a check up in at least six years, what with the international moves and all. I fully expect to come home with dentures. Woe.

Head back further in time with Johnny’s wrap. No Bulletcast video again today, I expect, because Pat’s still in Sweden with Chris, Colin, and … what was its name? Oh, yes, Battelefield 3. I quizzed him and it turns out our readers are way more handsome, intelligent and delightful than anybody else on the trip, which only confirmed my suspicions.

Here are today’s headlines; you may want to scroll down a little anyway, as Johnny popped up and started vomiting news like a four year old at an unlimited cake party, and I’m rudely leaving them out, since he always doubles up regardless. Humph. Anyway, we started off with a number of contributions from Deb:

Today’s header image is Cee Lo Green, who is probably best known now for his viral hit “Fuck You”. But he had a couple of great albums before that, is half of Gnarls Barkley, and has an illustrious list of collaborations. Also, the man knows how to dress, yowza. Much love.
